it and this is the first time he left a mark on mitt romney. it was not a knock down. but it was a moment when he was able to say, something that showed he was actually in denver for the debate. because up until that moment, i am not if he was precelebrating his anniversary, i don't know. he had not tuned in to the same debate that 67 million people tuned into . and here is president obama touting what he has done for education. >> we have got programs called race to the top promped reforms in 46 states and raising standarped proving how we train teachers and now i want to hire 100,000 new math and science teacher and create more spots in the community colleges so people can get trained and i want to make sure and keep tuitition low for our young people. >> and i want to make sure everybody's christmas stocking is fill would with everything they wanted. one little problem about what he's saying not been race to the top it is not a bad program and i commend arnie duncan for rewarding poem who do well. that is different than it is economy where we punish people for doing well. i wish the president's economi

the marginal rate, the point down to 20% essentially what romney is talking about, then people who make income, actually, their taxes go down in only one way, if they make more income, and that's the incentivizization to make more income because you're not giving back 35% to the government. when we lower marginal tax rates, we get more from the people output in the society. >> jonas, you believe we need tax increases in the long run, in the short run, what is going to get jobs. >> and there's nothing you can do to the tax code that isn't going to hurt the job market. >> lower the marginal rates. >> you say romney wants to lower the raets and remove the deduction, let's say he removes the mortgage deduction, home builder, you're going to hire more people, and if they remove it, hire more people, probably not. you're going to bring net knew revenue to the government. not going cut enough you're going to hurt the job market. now, specifically, if you hit the high end, like they want to do, let's say they did that, and yeah, that's, that's tax, when you tax people in the middle that is cost of hir
'm 55, 60 years old i know my body is going to be broke down and romney doesn't care about that. >> bill: a nasty situation involving a romney campaign sign also in california. here now fox news anchor geraldo rivera. so richard is mad at romney, why? >> well, richard hayes is a really, the sanitation worker. is he really the garbage collector at romney's la jolla mansion. also a member of as me the american federation of county and state employees. wevehement opponents of mitt romney's candidacy. they represent all the municipal workers. the people whose pensions are bankrupting cities and have been, you know, in the crosshairs of mitt romney and the republicans for this entire election cycle. so they come up with this idea in the wake of the 47% hidden video where romney said, you know, half the people in this country don't pay income tax. they are not going to vote for me no matter what. what they are trying to do democrats and very aggressive militant group of public employees are trying to do is really portray romney as a man out of touch. he lives in a mansion with an elevator for
and republican poll is honest and truthful, romney is down 14%. talks about is a strong leader, down 23%. willing to change his position at any given time 20. %. that's all he gets. romney still has problems left to go. expectations for obama were sky high going in the debate. >> dana: i don't think so. you said it earlier. i don't think so. the expectations were romney were high because if he had not done well we'd talk about how the campaign was shambles and how we figure out a way to talk about the finish line. >> bob: he did well because expectations were low. >> eric: he was more prepared and more ready. >> bob: i said that. >> dana: another problem that obama's team has. detailed in the "new york times" today. second time that somebody on background on the obama campaign said that obama has distain for romney. >> kimberly: you can tell. >> dana: disdain is looking down at somebody. half the country looks down at the white house at the rest of america. that is why quietly the polls are going up. the disdain shows. what has eever done? >> greg: disdain for academic. >> bob: romney wins distai
with autism or down's synd scprom wants to throw granny over the cliff. romney rendered all of those millions of dollars wasted. there is a side by side and people saw for themselves, a very different person than a caricature that the democrats were painting of him. where does he go from here? how should he prepare for the next debates? >> i think romney has to continue to hammer at these points. he gave a foreign policy speech, this monday, i am afraid it's a little bit late. when we were seized in the libya story and the american embassies were under attack from tunisia to indonesia, that was the time that he should have given it. now, he will be giving it. i think it's a great negatism but tell take the focus off the economy, which is where romney was scoring so heavily. he has to come back to the economy. stay on these points. he has to be a little bit wary because obama's going to come into the second debate, with low expectations and the second thing about this is, the second debate is going to be in a town hall that. places to obama's strengths. the relation with the audience. he has a
soon. goch gov mitt romney we'll go down in florida, a rally in the battle ground state. let's watch and listen . (crowd noise) approximate [applause] >> thank you. [applause] >> you warm my heart, i have to tell you. what an honor for us to be here with you this evening. how it humbles us to see so many people come out and care about our country so deeply that you spend your evening with ann and me. i brought someone special with me. you can tell. this is a young lady who went to the same elementary school i . i didn't notice her then and when we got to high school and she was 16, we went to a party together, she was with someone else and i decided they wanted to take her home with me and take her rather. that was latter. and i said to the guy she came to the party with. i live closer to ann than you do. can i give her a ride home and she said sure . and we have gone steady every since. my sweet heart, ann romney. [applause] >> wow! what a crowd. this is so as mitt said humbling to see so many people come out and believe in america . we believe in america. [applause] i think back of
. governor romney is going to let wall street run wild again but bring the hammer down on sesame street? >> and democrats are wondering where that president obama was in the debate on wednesday and people wonder if he will be tough one on one when he has the stage. >>> and the obama touting a 181 million for september we have yet to hear from the romney campaign how they did last month. >> thank you for bringing us up to date from the romney camp. >> i don't know what the right number is, but i will tell you, these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. >> what about those recent numbers in the latest job report and showing a dip in the unemployment. former chairman jack welch is skeptical. meaning that employers added a modest 114,000 jobs and the drop comes at a critical time for the president who is coming off a weak debate performance with romney. joining us is new york times best selling author out with the latest book. ann coulter. at this point in time the president said we will be at 5.6 and enjoying that part of the economy and a more com
said obama didn't do his best last night. romney won hands down. body language alone. if you looked at the debate. president obama looked down a lot. and looking at his notes. what about the body language. >> i thought body language. styliically romm rom was the winner. no one disputes that. but the substance issues, when you look at the fact that mitt romney got out there and said, he's not going to voucher -- he will voucherize medicare and cut taxes. what i find interesting is that mitt romney has been all over the place in what he. >> no, he hasn't. >> you can't trust him. just yesterday he said something else. when it comes down to it. they are issues that are challenging. >> for obama to go back to the bill clinton days. bill clinton worked with republicanns, president obama has not. >> he tried to work with republicans. >> one more question i want to ask you both. >> sure. >> what about the undecided vores? that is what they aimed for. who won the undecided vote. >> mitt romney did. independents are result oriented and mitt romney said this is how it worked in the past and go
tries to put down mitt romney's faith, which i just don't really understand why he's doing that. >> mike: congressman, if he opens this door and wants to get into mitt romney's faith and where he goes to church, does not that open the door for us to go back and revisit reverend jeremiah wright and all of the aspects of president obama's faith? >> you know, in my opinion, i don't think so. i think we've litigated that issue, we know where barack obama was for 20 years at church. he keeps hiding what he was, but the born thing is that mitt romney actually has policies that are going to be better for america than barack obama. barack obama has a record of four years of failure. mitt romney has a lifetime of success. and i think that's what this election is going to be about. and i think it's totally inappropriate for harry reid or any other person in the democratic party to bring up mitt romney's faith. and i don't think we should play that game on our side. >> mike: well, let me say congressman, you look pretty normal to me. two of my very favorite public servants in the world, michael lea
by how well prepared romney was for this debate. quite frankly i was too. i think i was looking down because he was nervous for that reason. i think he was also looking down at his notes trying to find points to i can ma. in -- points to make. that being said he lacked a lot of details. and while he caught obama on a bad day, he needs to be prepared for the next one. i don't think obama will make the same mistake twice. >> statistically you don't get two big debate showings in a roa. you don't beat the team 14-0 two days in a row. >> can't obama say the 40 percent video is a bad thing. or will that look lame that he is pushing that point. >> did he miss the window? >> i don't think it is about bane or the 47%. when fer you are doing -- when ever you are doing a debate, you are bound to miss some, but he missed all but one. >> everyone supporting obama wanted him to be angry and jump on romney when he was playing fast and loose with the facts. instead he looked like he wanted a nap. i called this from the beginning, and i will tell you why. when you watch when they come in, romney's f
. the president would not look at mitt romney? >> steve: no. >> brian: he kept looking down . romm rom was staring at him. >> steve: he would look at jim lehrer like he is taking too much time. >> brian: i thought it was telling and you saw a guy that did one thing and i thought the b.b.c. katy k who never said anything nice about a republican. president obama has spent millions was dollars trying to show that governor romney was not worthy of being president. governor romney showed he was worthy and he is competent and all of that money was wasted to any of the 60 million who watched. >> steve: that's the beauty of seeing them side by side unfiltered and uninterrupt no commercials. in 30 second sound bites you can try to defend or define your opponent and that's what the president has done. last night, gretchen, when the president of the united states am mitt romney want to cut taxes for rich guys. mr. romney said mr. president, that is not the case. >> i know you and your running mate keep saying that and it is popular to say. but it is not the case. i have five boys and i am used to people sayi
feeling. my feeling is probably mitt romney is down a point or two. i think the debate wednesday night is crucial. how these events unfold is going to be important. >> i agree he's down a point or two. rasmussen has him down by three, which is unusual. two other factors come in to play. one is the higher level of enthusiasm among republicans, 16 points higher. secondly, the undecided vote tending to go against the incumbent. so i believe that romney can come back. i think he will. i think a lot depends on the debate wednesday night. the debate is stacked to play in romney's favor. the things romney is accusing obama of owe mismanaging the economy, fast and furious, this banghazi stuff -, that can't be rebutted. what obama is accusing romney of, being a tax cheat, swiss bank accounts, all that kind of stuff, can be rebutted. >> sean: what obama will say -- thus this will be mostly on the economy. obama will say, it's getting better. that was the recovery summer of 2010. >> but romney -- there were a whole lot of people right now who want to vote for romney. want to vote against obama. b
taxes and tax hikes and mitt romney said in january, 2010 you said raising tachs in a down turn would hurt the economy. you ed that when economic growth was strong, now, it's weaker you're proposing raising taxes and this is part of a strong night. >> and i'm eating a little crow tonight. we were in vermont and the governor was preparing this last week, i woke up saying why aren't we campaigning? tonight we found out ychl the governor was preparing and on his game tonight. there is some substantive issues the president going to try to throw back at him. and appearing to double down on wanting to voucherize medicare. i recognize the president's performance. in college i felt like i didn't need to study for an everybody lish exam because i already new english. >> greta: seemed like the president early on quit z i have never seen this. like this went out of him, the oxygen. i was really surprised and he's particularly dynamic on his feet. he looked like he quit. >> he can be dynamic. we've seen him give strong speeches. a agree waits interesting that the president seemed to almost take i
. president obama came across as irritated and looking down. never looking up. and this is romney looking at the president, just a wrong tone. romney was president yismt had humor, who knew he had a sense of humor, i've got five boys i'm used to hearing people say things that aren't true and hoping i'll believe them. you're entitled to your own place and house but not your own facts. he was pretty darn funny. and there is a tone of bipartisanship. in 2008 barack obama did a good job of saying i'm going to be the president of everybody. tonight romney in a different way said look, i'm going to work together with democrats and republicans and there is a very effective presentation in that regard there. is wrn reason take those things together and president obama's supporters have every reason to be upset tonight. >> and tomorrow we'll have fact checking done on everything. and in terms of this president obama supporters one of my colleagues spoke with leader pelosi and she must have seen a different debate than the rest of the democrats were tweeting tonight it says pelosi says defining mom
romney was down double digit. >> he was down in ohio, certainly. i don't know about double digits. notice news organization which spent all the money doing the state polls, we have not had one poll since the debate talking about the effect, favorability and other things. i will say this: one of the things that has happened, the race has the disconnect -- romney should you'd this, the $200 million or more spent making him into an eager and the president never made the charges. i would be out there torpedoing obama's add very advertising, why won't he say it himself? >> i put up the real clear politics electoral map because there are changes. 251-181. you need 270. president obama is in the heed. he did have, can you put up the electoral college map in he did have ohio. that now is in the contested column. romney loses month, both move to swing states. talk to us about this, congressman? >> it is what we have been saying. if romney heals himself, and he went a long way in doing, it will affect the national picture and all the states will go in line with that. he has done that. here is the t
the night. mitt romney energized and was staring at him the whole time, meaning the president. the president would look down, and looking to bail him out in this debate. we've never seen this before in president obama. there is a lot of ground to cover tonight of we'll check in with our focus group. we're live with a lot of voters out there. frank, interested in their reaction tonight. >> and there is in denver that voted accurately and how many of you thought barack obama was a winner, how many of you thought mitt romney? understand this. 13 of the 24 people voted for obama in 2008. why did mitt romney do so well? >> i just respected his ability to speak to issues that he was on point. he looked like he was well prepared. i was very impressed. >> i agree. same thing. decisive. leadership. >> jordan? >> had passion and he's been try and talked about leadership, we need that. >> notice you're telling me attributes and not substansz. not issues. how he performed rather than where he stood. >> this is to talk about social issues. we understand his business background, how well he's done. we hav
do their job. mitt romney kept looking him in the eye. and obama looking down. didn't have answers and anecdotes didn't fit the question or moment. he was meandering. you know? for -- who bill mahr tweeted out i think he does need a teleprompter. >> the president built a mythical campaign. now you have to stand next to the person. there is another moment you're going raise $5 trillion in taxes. the answer is no, i'm not. i'm going to going to do anything with tax that's increases national debt. the president nothing left to say he wanted to move away from the topic. >> sean: he was trying to explain to romney what romney's plan is. and other thing is that he's claiming governor romney had not been specific. he went through what -- where he stood on health care, what is wrong with obama care, choices he'd make differently on medicare. all of these things and the economy. and job creation. very specific. >> but he did something else proved why he's ready for the job. he said look. as an executive he's not running to be speech maker but chief executive of the united states of america.
policy. the president is looking to beat down some of mitt romney's plan, saying they will add to deficit spending. look for mitt romney to respond to that. they will rule out more specifics there. >>shepard: as you watch tonight, what is the question that the political reporter whose watch these guys all the time think could be a real stumbling block. >>guest: if we get to immigration, in one of the last two segments, about the role of government, immigration will be a tough sell for both of these candidates. neither of them have said much about what they would do. president obama in a second temperature on mitt romney if elected. that could be a stumbling block for both of them. >>shepard: thank you from our capitol hill newsroom. thank you. representatives from both candidates will be coming up in a moment. we will see how each responds to tough questions about the campaign and what each wants to hear from the other side. also, a manhunt on the border this afternoon. federal agents trying to fine the people who killed one of their own. the latest on the investigation on a very busy aft
romney. that's down for the president from 54% back in september. so clearly that terrorist attack in benghazi has had some effect. that is why mitt romney sees an opening here. he's trying to pounce on it. but the bottom line is even with that dip, the president has a double digit lead over romney in terms of foreign policy handling. >> ed henry live with us. thanks very much. next up, the running mates, vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan set to face off this thursday. danville, kentucky. look at that mug shot. we'll be there. megyn and brett will host the vice presidential debate for us here on fox news channel. just right before 9:00 o'clock eastern time, 8:00 o'clock central here on fnc. the outbreak of rare form of meningitis infected more than 105 people. a tremendous jump, twice the number from three days ago. that's according to the reporting of the centers for disease control. so far health officials reported infection in nine states, all the ones in yellow here, at least eight people have reported to have died. remember investigators linked the cases to s
down while romney was making points or are criticizing him or attacking him. brett, i got to think that is debate 101 that you would tell your candidate always assume you are on camera and that they are looking at you even if the other guy is speaking. >> you know, it is funny, though, chris, the debate history, presidential debate history is replete with examples of where candidates don't pay attention to how they look and say things and are only worried about what they say. audiences tell us they take as much as 65% of the meaning from how candidates or how people say things. you have the famous george bush looking at his watch or al gore sighing in the debate. and this time around we have the president who seems to be disinterested, who seems to be irritated and not focused on the debate. >> chris: what do you tell a candidate to do when the other guy is speaking or even attacking? >> well, you know, certainly you can take notes, you can look out at the audience but every now and then you need to look at your opponent. it is kind of odd if a person is talking directly to you lik
a state that mitt romney has been struggling. right now, romney is still down by a point there. but it is a competitive situation. the fact is, all three of these states have nobody, really, in the lead. they are pure toss ups. the question is whether this is just a bounce that will fade or is it something that mitt romney can build upon and carry through the remaining month. >> now, someone from real clear politics said maybe the jobless numbers today could benefit president obama a little bit but give us a sense of how long these things last, how long the bounce lasts and what we should look for the next week? >>guest: well, bounces last these days less than a week so if it is just a bounce it will fade. they last only until there is a better story. the jobs numbers today give president obama something new to talk about, a more positive direction. most voters are concept california of good economic news , whether it is a republican or democratic president until it is repeated. so, if the next jobs report is good or the next series of economic reports are better, that the help
director. emily, you look at the polls and it appears that governor romney is way down when it comes to women especially single women. you not about to be swayed toward the romney catch, but if you were, what do you want to hear the governor talk about? >>guest: well, the way governor romney will portray himself is what he is messaging. president obama is coming through with an honest conversation for the american people, another opportunity for a conversation. the president did it at convention and will do it tomorrow night. from governor romney, the only final we saw him be honest is as you mentioned, 37 percent, 47 percent, he doesn't believe he needs to represent 47 percent of the american people. if i were the working mother, and i was part of the 47 percent, if i was a student as a single mother, as a single women, or deployed veteran, that is part of the 47 percent, i would not believe he is there to represent me. >>trace: the president says, sherry, on the specific faces, he is an average debater, and we know he is a good debater. the question is, does he have enough ammuniti
agenda amounting to trickle down government, both romney and his running mate will be appearing here in virginia today. another campaign stop tomorrow and then florida through the weekend, precede ago big foreign policy speech on monday. brett. >> bret: carl, thank you. spin cycle, damage control, whatever you want to call it. president obama and his people are doing it on this day after the debate. here is ed henry. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >> at his had first rally after the debate debauchle, president obama immediately went on the attack, saying his performance was not as fine as his top campaign advisors are insisting. >> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year and that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. >> yet even some veteran democrats didn't seem to be buying that explanation. >> i don't think the president took him very seriously and he should have and for a large part, th
team obama to buckle down more. he came out and he wasn't crisp. mitt romney looked like a credible punch. >> i think .... >> if you look at the twitter verse the republicans are very happy at this moment including the top team around mitt romney. >> where was obama tonight? >> there you go. mainstream and liberal media are shocked, shocked. the president didn't win. >> right. chris matthews went on to say, if only the president had been watching my show. [ laughter ] >> look. this was one of those epic political masters. jay leno said it best, only the replacement refs think president obama had a good night. >> jon: the comment that challengers always get a boost. nobody seemed to want to say mitt romney won because mitt romney won. >> it was amazing even msnbc had to carry on as if someone in the family had died. it was as piston irk but it was a rare moment of consensus in the press because the press basically agreed romney had won. that must have been painful to admit that but it was obvious. >> jon: they were waiting for a mitt romney gaffe. they were going to pounce upon that
that they are not changing strategy, they're doubling down on their strategy of going after mitt romney. >> yeah, if you thought it was ugly so far, just hold on. and the problem the democrats have is that, what mitt romney really did in denver is he demolished to a certain extent their main campaign strategy. their goal was to go out there and present him in a negative light and spent enormous amount of money, saying this guy is an rapascious candidate and presenting barack obama as the alternative. he took a sledgehammer. they can't run on the economy, on the president's legislative record, people don't like it. now they're going to go straight after his character, suggest he has a credibility issue, call him a liar, say that he's a flip-flopper and that's where they'll go for the rest of the election. >> kim is touching on a really important point, which is fear is such a big part of the obama campaign. i mean, he is trying to gin up fear for people who, you know, you have 23 million people out of work and tell them, by the way, this guy is going to take away any chance for health care? >> when romne
and governor mitt romney hunker down for one last day of prep before the first big presidential debate. what we can expect when both candidates take the stage tomorrow night. we actually have a debate coach who is going to answer all the questions about the secrets of being a good debater. an intense manhunt underway for the person who killed a u.s. border patrol agent right near the spot where agent brian terry was murdered in 2010. the details on that next. gregg: a pennsylvania court blocking voter id law from going into effect right before the election in november, it happened in pennsylvania, and the deputy secretary of state there issuing the following statement just moments ago. quote: we are pleased that today's court decision upholds pennsylvania's voter id law under today's ruling, voter id will be implemented, but on a different time frame. this november all voters will be asked to show photo id when they vote, though it will not be required. this is, essentially, the same voting process we implemented in the spring primary. in the meantime, we are reviewing all legal options. well,
romney's reaction to the same number. >> the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. and if you just drop out of the work force, if you just give up and say i can't go back to work, i'm going to stay home and drop out altogether, why, you're no longer part of the employment statistics, so looks like unemployment is getting better. but the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the work force today, as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. >> the president clearly sees today's numbers good news for his campaign, but eric you've been digging into the numbers. can you help us dig a little deeper. what do the numbers say? >> there's something in here that i really, honestly in 25 years of doing this, that i can't figure out. and here a quick white board on it. okay, so the bureau of labor statistics come out and the estimates by the economists were 113,000 jobs created. wall street journalist had 25 economists, we think 113,000 jobs created and that
. it was interesting to see mitt romney looking mostly over at president obama when he was making his point and president obama choosing to look at jim lehrer or looking down. what message do the viewers pick up on that? president obama looking directly into the camera on the subject of obamacare, wanting to communicate directly to the viewers at home, past the moderator. there was mostly respectful sparring in a robust debate. the moderator, jim lehrers was not nrsly in control, but not ineffective. this is the first time we have seen the candidates go back and forth. instead of hearing from a moderator, we got to hear from them. >> that's right. he watched a lot of the time, as the candidates went back and forth. you know, we were wondering what governor romney would be like, coming in, whether he would go on the offensive. that really was answered in the first few minutes. he was energetic and aggressive. he knew his brief. it seemed like he was a defender of the free markets and his business experience. in the first 30 to 40 minutes, seemed to make significant points. president obama in
romney. however, when it comes down to election day, i'm looking for somebody other than obama. >> you are? that is what is driving you? >> yes. yeah. other than obama, i'm railly, i'm not appreciating the performance.
